Do you know what it is?

Surprise

SURPRISE!

It’s SELF-LOVE!

Here are 4 simple steps to increase your Self-Love.

1. Do you love yourself unconditionally?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love yourself?

stopsignand consider . . .

Write down a number from 1 to 10 this very minute.

It’s important for you to answer this question before continuing.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

heart^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

OK.  Now please continue.

Are you focused on the flaws you see in yourself?

OR

Do you love yourself despite all the flaws you may see?

You came into this life with gifts.

You also came into this life with flaws, sometimes called challenges.

You came to experience those challenges, to learn from them, and to heal them.

Your gifts are there to help you heal those challenges.

Some of the gifts actually appear as challenges.

Some of the challenges actually are gifts when you look at them from the higher perspective.

It’s all perfect.  Your life plan is perfect.

RECOGNIZE YOUR DIVINE PERFECTION.

Without self-love, you’re making your life more difficult.

Is that what you really want to do?

2. Have you eliminated self criticism?

Is there a little voice inside your head yelling at you, calling you dumb or stupid, and telling you that you’re no good or not good enough?

man yelling at boy

Do you berate and abuse yourself over the tiniest things?

OR

Do you speak in supportive, loving ways to yourself when things don’t come out the way you expected or wanted?

Mistakes are how we learn.

Mistakes are gifts to ourselves so that we CAN learn.

From this perspective, there really are no mistakes at all.

There are simply opportunities to learn that we give ourselves.

Make a commitment.

Stop judging yourself. 

Stop criticizing yourself.

Be kind to yourself.

 

The judgmental, critical voice in your head is a part of you who feels unloved and is trying in the only way it knows how, to increase self-love.

Unfortunately, the method it’s using is doomed to failure.

Fortunately, this part of you can be helped to shift into greater love and kindness.

3. When did you last forgive yourself?

If you made choices in the past that caused you to feel less than worthy, then you need to forgive yourself.

There’s really no need to beat yourself up over the past. Holding on and abusing yourself keeps the old pains and the old stories going.

Isn’t it time for a change?

You DESERVE forgiveness.

When you forgive yourself, it’s like setting a prisoner free, and you discover that the prisoner was YOU.

4. Have you changed your mantra lately?

Identify and transform all

negative, low energy

messages you are giving yourself.

Transform them into

UPLIFTING,

EMPOWERING

MESSAGES.

* * * * * * * * * *

Practice these 4 steps for a week.

Then rate your self-love again on a scale from 1 to 10.

You may be surprised to see how much your self-love has grown.

Life Review While Still Alive?

June 17, 2015 by

We All Do A Life Review After Death.

We are spiriling through our personal history.

As part of your ascension,

you’re doing your life review now.

What is a “life review?”

A life review is part of the transitional process normally experienced by our spirit and soul after we leave our physical body and return to the soul plane.

In a life review, you

  • observe your entire life. and
  • feel exactly how others felt as they interacted with you.

This is why “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is such a powerful message.   It means:

  • Open your heart and be compassionate to others.
  • Whatever you do to someone else you will experience as karma
  • You’ll get to feel it all from the point of view of others as part of your life review.
  • We’re all one being — we’re not really separate at all!

The purpose of a life review is to teach you.  It’s educational for your spirit and your soul to know the effect it’s had on others.

Why are we doing life reviews now?

We’re doing our life reviews now because, through the ascension process, we’re moving into a whole new way of being.  As 5th Dimensional beings, we’ll live much longer lives and will not need to reincarnate to clear our karma.

Actually, we’re in the process of clearing karma as we do our views here in our physical bodies.

For example, a memory pops up into your awareness — something you haven’t thought about in years or even decades.  Perhaps this event occurred when you were very young.  You feel as if you’ve traveled back in time, because the memory is so clear and so powerful.  Suddenly it’s like you’re right there, reliving the event.

As you re-experience the event, you’ll start to feel your own feelings at the time of that event.  Some of those feelings might never have been expressed at the time the event took place, so now you’re clearing them.

You might be afraid, angry, ashamed, and embarrassed.

You could be experiencing feelings of jealousy, abandonment, or any other dense emotion or feeling.

You might find yourself crying or expressing those old feelings in some other way.  That’s good!  Let it all out.

And then you find you still haven’t let go of this experience.  There are some people who were kind, who helped you.  You may not even know their names, but you remember them.  It’s time to express gratitude to them by opening your heart and thanking them.  Those souls will receive your gratitude and appreciation when you do this.

If you still find yourself enmeshed in this old memory, there’s one more step for you to take to complete it.

FORGIVE! 

  • Forgive everyone whose actions were hurtful to you. 
  • Forgive yourself for bringing this experience to you (take responsibility for your part in creating the situation).
  • Forgive and thank everyone who helped you to have the experience, and then …
  • Let it all go!

Once you’ve done the forgiveness work, the electromagnetic charge around the experience will release.

Now you’ve cleared the karma and the emotional charge.

Now your ego is no longer stuck around this experience, and you’re ready to move on to healing something else.

Now you’re truly free of it.  How does that feel?

Don’t you feel lighter, brighter, more at peace within yourself?

Congratulations!

Kindness Creates Happiness.

May my mind be peaceful and happy.

Happy Life

When we’re happy,
we’re open to the universe.
We lead with an open heart.

One of the benefits of being kind and loving to yourself is that you start to feel happy.  You may not notice it immediately, but you will if you consistently treat yourself with kindness.

A peaceful mind is necessary to happiness.  If we allow our thoughts to run rampant with negative and worrying messages, we will definitely feel unhappy and fearful.  When we make our mind peaceful by focusing on positive, kind thoughts, our energy shifts into a more peaceful state and happiness emerges.

To achieve peacefulness of mind, begin by paying attention to the messages you give yourself.  Whatever you notice, write it down.  Make a list of all the things you say to yourself over a 3-day period.

  • Do you call yourself names?
  • Do you find yourself yelling at yourself or speaking harshly to yourself?
  • Do you hear yourself being angry and impatient with yourself?
  • Do you bully yourself?
  • Do you set unreasonable expectations for yourself and then treat yourself badly when you fail to meet them?
  • Do you actually believe you deserve to be treated badly in these and other ways?
  • Do you believe that “nothing ever works out for me?”  Or, “I never get what I want?”  Or other similar messages?
  • Do you hear yourself repeating messages you received as a child from the adults or peers in your life at that time?
  • If someone else is angry with you or critical of you, do you blame yourself for their judgmental behavior?

After 3 days, review the messages you wrote down. using the questions above.

  • What did you discover from this review?
  • Did you start remembering being bullied by others as a child – by adult family members, siblings, peers, teachers or other authority figures?
  • Did you remember making a decision to chastise yourself so that others wouldn’t be angry or bully you?
  • Did you start feeling emotions from the past that you had buried?

Whatever you discovered is good because you can’t let go of the past until you know what you’re still holding onto.

Children learn what they live, and if you don’t love yourself very much it might be because you didn’t feel loved as a child.  Of course, you probably were loved, but you may not have felt loved.  You might have felt that you had to meet certain conditions or standards in order to be loved.

Most of our parents and the other adults around us were wrestling with their own versions of this and often responded to us the way their parents responded to them.  This is how family patterns get passed along.

When we’re children, we don’t realize that adults are often struggling to provide for the family and may be holding onto their own emotional and mental pain from their childhood.  We can’t heal their situation, but we can heal ourselves.

You can decide,

“The past is the past, and right here in this NOW moment, I AM making a new choice.  I AM free to choose to love myself and to treat myself with loving kindness.”

Only then can you free yourself from the past.  To free yourself, you can take these steps.

  • Feel all the feelings.
  • Forgive yourself.
  • Forgive the other person(s).
  • Love yourself.  Look into your eyes and love yourself as you are right now.
  • Envision sending the entire energy packet of thoughts and feelings back out into the universe to be transmuted.

If you choose to send the energy packet away, you might see yourself on a beach stepping into the water just a bit and sending it all out into the Ocean of Love on the tide.  See, feel, allow, imagine it all dissolving into the Ocean of Love and being transformed.

Another practice that will begin the heal process from these old messages is to use a very simple prayer from the Buddhist tradition.  Any of these statements, whichever one appeals to you, will express exactly what you are requesting:  peace of mind.

May I have mental happiness.

May I have happiness.

May I be peaceful.

May I be liberated.

When you use this prayer and take steps to treat yourself with loving kindness, your mind will begin to shift.   You’ll find yourself feeling happier and more at peace.

 

Kindness and Self-Love.

Do You Expect Others to Love You

More Than You Love Yourself?

loving partners

There is a well-known poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning that begins,

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my soul can reach….

Can you imagine what it is like to be loved this way?

Can you imagine what it is like to love yourself this way?

To love yourself completely, without judgment, is a practice, and it’s time for each of us to begin living not only from our hearts, but from a space of pure love, the kind that has no limitations, no boundaries, no judgment.

Are you ready?

Here’s one way to get started.

I, [insert name], hereby pledge myself to self-love.

As of today, [insert date], I promise myself that I will daily practice self-love in these ways.

  1. I will tell myself, “I love you” 3 times while looking into my eyes and thinking of someone else I love without limitation.  (This can be a human, animal, or divine being.)
  2. I will think of something I truly like and appreciate about myself and will write it down and post it on a wall.  (Use post-it notes, so that each day you can add a new one.)
  3. I will forgive myself for something that I don’t like about myself and post it on a forgiveness chart.
  4. I will be kind to myself by catching myself each time I have a negative thought or make a negative remark in my head or out loud, and instead hugging myself and telling myself that I love myself just as I am.

Signed:  ____________________

It’s OK to make mistakes. 

Do you believe that?

How else will you learn?

So if you take this pledge and then “forget” to do it,

there’s no need to get all in a tizzy and down on yourself.

Just begin again!

The world has not ended, and you have not proven how terrible you are.

What a perfect opportunity to learn forgiveness!!

SURPRISE: September Is Half Over

September 16, 2011 by  
Filed under Age of Ascension, New Posts

 

How did September get here so fast?

 

Are you noticing that experiences that you used to have over a period of weeks and months can all jamb up into a single day?

Have you found yourself trying to make “to do” lists that run off the end of an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of paper?

Have some things just fallen between the cracks never to be found again because you haven’t had time to look for them, much less to remember that you lost them?

STOP.

BREATHE.

TAKE SEVERAL DEEP BREATHS.

 

We are SUPPOSED to be learning to LIVE IN THE NOW – IN THIS VERY MOMENT.

Ask yourself, “what has to be done right now?”

Then do it and forget about all the lists.

Perhaps the answer to that question is to take a nap?

Soak in a hot tub?

Drink your favorite hot liquid?

Take a walk in nature?

Right now, this very moment, the biggest gift you can give yourself, no matter what is happening in your life, is a feeling of GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION.

That’s right!! BE GRATEFUL.

Think of someone or something that evokes love in your heart no matter what is going on and BE GRATEFUL for knowing or having known that being or situation.

Then, APPRECIATE YOURSELF.

Every morning, the first thing to do is to HUG YOURSELF.

HUG yourself several times each day and tell all parts of you – your physical body, your mind, your emotions, your higher self, and, yes, even your ego self – how much you APPRECIATE them.

Then HUG your significant others.

HUG your friends.

HUG your entire family.

Put yourself into a space of APPRECIATION and GRATITUDE just for having them with you.

As we continue to move higher vibrationally and the world that we are leaving behind continues to fall into varying degrees of chaos, our STATE OF MIND – (or should I say, our STATE OF HEART)  is the most important asset we have.

SOOOO …. Time to put your mind into a state of REST and to LIVE FROM YOUR HEART CENTER.

Teach yourself to LIVE from your HEART – filled with APPRECIATION and GRATITUDE – filled with FORGIVENESS and LOVE WITH NO LIMITATION or CONDITIONS.

Then, no matter what happens, you will be on top of the wave.  On top of the world!!

Namaste,
Nedda
